As previously mentioned, the 2012 BAMcinemaFEST kicks off tonight (6/20) with a screening of Mike Birbiglia’s Sleepwalk with Me. This year’s fest includes 22 features with 20 of those being New York premieres and, as usual, there are a few music-related films as well. On June 26 they’ll screen Radio Unnamable, a documentary about WBAI DJ Bob Fass, “the father of freeform radio.” There will be a Q&A after the screening with Fass and directors Paul Lovelace, Jessica Wolfson. Immediately after that will be a performance in the BAMcinemaFest lounge with Simeon Coxe of Silver Apples which is free with your screening ticket.

Screening on June 28 is  Tim Sutton’s debut feature Pavillion, which “follows laconic teenager Max, who moves from an idyllic lakeside town in New York to his father’s home in arid suburban Arizona.” The score is by the Sea & Cake’s Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt, and the two will perform immediately after the screeening in the BAMcinemaFest lounge. Again, the performance is free with the ticket to the screening. This explains why Sam and Archer are performing at Mercury Lounge on June 30 too.

And the closing night (7/1) is a screening of Lotte Reiniger’s dreamlike 1926 animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed with live accompaniment by by Dublin collective 3epkano and Erik Friedlander.

The same night is a screening of documentary Rock ‘N’ Roll Exposed: The Photography of Bob Gruen about the legendary rock photographer which was directed by Big Audio Dynamite’s Don Letts (The Punk Rock Movie, Strummerville). The screening is followed by BAMcinemaFest’s closing night party.
